BAKERSFIELD, CA (KERO) -- A California boy has his pet cat to thank for rushing to his rescue during a dog attack.

Surveillance video shows the young boy playing on his bicycle when a neighbor's dog sneaks up behind him and grabs his leg, pulling him to the ground. The family's cat, Tara, rushes the dog and chases him away.

The boy needed stitches, but his mom says he is doing okay. She says authorities now have the dog under observation.
